House of Marley Marks 10-Year Anniversary with Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

House of Marley, the eco-conscious audio company started by members of the late reggae star Bob Marley’s family, today introduced a second-generation wireless earbud featuring active noise cancellation (ANC) to mark its 10-year anniversary.

The new Redemption earbuds ($200) have 0.3-inch drivers and are made of recyclable materials — bamboo and recycled silicone for the earbuds themselves and a wood-fiber composite for the carrying case.

Battery life is rated to last up to 5 hours with ANC turned on but can be expanded to 20 hours using the battery back-up built into the travel case; play times increase to 7 and 28 hours, respectively, when ANC is switched off. A USB-C quick-charge feature provides 2 hours of playtime with a 15 minutes of charging.

Another handy feature is ambient mode, which lets you hear what’s going on around you without having to remove the earbuds.

Four microphones are used to ensure clear voice communication when taking and making calls, and the earbuds carry an IPX4 rating, meaning they are resistant to sweat and water splashes. Touch controls that respond to simple tapping handle phone calls and play, pause, and track skip when playing music.

Weight is balanced between the stem and body to help keep the earbuds secure in the ear, and Marley provides silicone ear fins and three pairs of silicone ear gels to ensure a comfortable fit. Rated impedance is 16 ohms and sensitivity is spec’d at 97 dB.
